The solution proposed to the Commonwealth will connect disparate Defence systems and platforms across all domains into a cohesive, integrated operational environment. The JABMS will provide a distinct advantage to the warfighter, by synchronising air and missile defence operations, improving situational awareness and enhancing the speed of decision making.
“Our Australian-led team brings Northrop Grumman’s best of breed all domain C2 technology from the US together with the best of Australian engineering,” said Christine Zeitz, general manager, Northrop Grumman Asia Pacific. “Northrop Grumman Australia’s JABMS solution will provide an advantage to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) through delivering a contemporary, sovereign solution that is able to defeat today’s threats and evolve to better meet the battlespace challenges of the future. I congratulate all members of our team, including our Australian industry partners, Nova Systems, Silentium, Daronmont and AOS Group, for their significant contribution to our Australian-led, world-class JABMS solution.”
Northrop Grumman Australia’s JABMS solution will draw on the company’s all domain command and control expertise and experience developing and demonstrating the U. S. Army’s Integrated Battle Command System (IBCS). The JABMS will use its open, modular and scalable architecture to integrate all available assets in the battlespace, regardless of source, service or domain.
Northrop Grumman Australia is one of two shortlisted companies selected to participate in the Commonwealth of Australia’s AIR6500 Competitive Evaluation Process to lead the design, development and delivery of the JABMS.
